We are just now beginning to realize what a truly amazing pup you have given us. What a gift.
She is astonishingly intelligent compared to any other dog we've ever known. She has already - IN THREE DAYS - got the basics down to the "come" command. She has already - IN THREE DAYS - become completely relaxed and bonded to us as her new pack. She has already - IN THREE DAYS - got the basics down for house training (it's us who occasionally miss her signals).
She is also, as you intimated, very birdy. Goes nuts when she sees a crow or a starling; and when sneaking up this evening on a squeaky toy, assumed the standard setter position.
She is also amazingly sociable and responsive. Two or three couples
have come by to meet her, and she loads them down with affection and unthreatened response. Amazing dog. I hope we're up to her.
What a gift.

P.S. She fell out of bed last night.
